A time, a place, & a Purpose
Understanding the Old Testament
May 24-June 28
ONLINE VIA ZOOM
led by Mark Bucko & Tel Schreiber
- Do you want to better understand the Old Testament but find it confusing and difficult?
- Why has God given us all these ancient historical accounts of humanity & Israel in particular?
- Do all these kings, empires, wars, prophets, & genealogies really matter now in light of the Gospel and the New Testament?
- Should we not just spend our time studying the “New” and forget the “Old?”
To address these questions and more, we are continuing our OT Survey by bringing to the Sunday Conversation a class titled, A Time, A Place, & A Purpose: Understanding the Old Testament.
Understanding the Old Testament is critical for gaining a deeper understanding of God’s character and His salvation work throughout history.
We will bring together a variety of resources to help illuminate the settings & purposes of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, & The Samuels.
The more we understand the relevance and message of the Old Testament, the more we understand God. As he said to Jeremiah: “…let him who boasts, boast in this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord…” How very exciting!
